They're Inside.
30 August 2020 | by morrison-dylan-fanSee all my reviews

Putting together a list of movies from FrightFest 2020 I would watch,I decided that one of the things I really wanted to do,was to at least see one title which would be streaming/screening for the first time ever at the event. Finding two premier showings were happening on Saturday, (the other was Playhouse (2020)) I flipped a coin,and went outside.

Note:Review contains some spoilers.

View on the film:

Hyping up to camera that he will cure Sarah Sanders of her agoraphobia in ten days, in between requesting viewers subscribe to his channel, Tom Wheatley gives a terrific performance as Spencer which avoids sanding down his off-putting rough edges, thanks to Wheatley delivering the dead-pan comedic swipes of the first half with a brittleness, which builds curiosity on learning more about Spencer,that Wheatley finely balances by having Spencer's bluntness become increasingly abrasive,firmly holding him away from becoming sympathetic.

Entering with a New Age groove,Emily Booth is a absolute delight as Penny, whose more mature, measured outlook Booth uses to keep Penny firmly at odds with Spencer's goals,whilst Chrissy Randall gives a quietly unsettling turn as Sanders, whose agoraphobia has Sanders walk on extremely fragile eggshells.

Partly based on the real Jack in the Green event held each year in Hastings, co-directors Sam Casserly & Airell Anthony Hayles wonderfully splice the Found Footage with colourful different methods of documentary making, from animation going into the background of Green Eyes and real footage of the Jack in the Green event, with retro, lo-res digital video giving the opening a local amateur doc appearance.

Taking a less is more approach to the sighting of Green Eyes,the screenplay by co-director Hayles treads the Found Footage with a chilly Folk Horror backdrop creeping up to a sinister surreal final.

Keeping Spencer, his girlfriend Nicole and Penny within Sanders house for the majority of the film, Hayles brightly lights simmering paranoia in the small-scale set-up allowing for up close and personal shocks to bounce between Sanders and Spencer,who look from the front door to discover what is outside.
